Going to the barbershop should be about more than just the haircut. Opened by Shanghai-based events and artist management company SHFT, the newest men’s style salon in town also places big emphasis on getting the soundtrack right. At The Fixx, expect to hear all things hip hop, from ’80s and ’90s classics to new hits and mixes from emerging China artists.
Admittedly the haircut is also pretty important. Here, internationally trained barbers wield the shears and razors, offering full haircuts (300RMB), braids and beard trims. A beer or whiskey is included with each service.
